united site --no charge if sent via reg mail
I figured out that if you buy gift card in united shopping mall, there is $2.95 charge, but if you go to retail store through the link, buy gift card, there is not shipping charge.

Check the fine print under the HOW TO EARN, it will list there if there is restriction.

see this one:
https://www.mileageplusshopping.com/retailerdetails.aspx?merchbrandid=6209668505490

Under 'how to earn' you will see 'Rewards not applicable on purchase or redemption of gift cards'.

I don't see restriction on Sears, K-mart and Barnes & Noble. Unfortunately, all my favor stores have restrictions.

ref above

I recalled untd because I saw on ur link
"Rewards not applicable on purchase or redemption of gift cards"
so could not trust first rep  who told me all gift cards are ok --- the next rep told me you are registered but will notget credit as only those targeted will --spoke to supervisor told me send copy of invite.....

any thoughts ?

I got the 2 for 1,000 promo :D

Buy $100,000 in GCs to Sams Club in $10 increments.  Get 10,075,000 miles.  Fly to CA and return the GCs (Have fun with that one!) and your only cost is the plane ticket.

Anyone want to build me a Firefox macro for the GC purchases?

Of course then the mileage mall comes back and says that Sams Club GCs don't qualify and you're SOL...
I'm confused on the math.
$100,000 in $10 increments is 10,000 purchases.
If you get 1000 miles for every 2, wouldn't it total 5,000,000?

From what we've seen recently of the mileage mall, don't expect anything without a fight...

should be 5,000,000 + 0.75 * $100,000 = 5,075,000 miles + what you got for credit card spending :)

Yup, calculated 1K per transaction instead of per 2 transactions,
No doubt it would end in a massive fight.
